Fossils are the preserved remains or traces of animals, plants, and other organisms from the remote past.
Like extant organisms, fossils vary in size from microscopic to gigantic. A fossil normally preserves only a portion of the deceased organism, usually that portion that was partially mineralized during life, such as the bones and teeth of vertebrates, or the chitinous exoskeletons of invertebrates. Preservation of soft tissues is exquisitely rare in the fossil record. Fossils may also consist of the marks left behind by the organism while it was alive, such as the footprint or feces of a reptile. These fossils are called trace fossils, as opposed to body fossils. Finally, past life leaves some markers that cannot be seen but can be detected in the form of biochemical signals; these are known as chemofossils.

Can someone with some fossil knowledge tell what kind of fossil this could be?
I have limited knowledge about fossils and the creatures that can be contained in them, but i am very curious. I tend to think it's some kind of lobster like creature. Please leave a message (click on contact) if you have an idea.
